Do you sail in sight of other boats?
I see PFDs on maybe one in ten of the boaters I see. There will be a boat that comes along with every crew member in a vest, and then boat after boat of no vests or just one or two.
FWIW - I don't see any differences between power and sail in this regard
It's just not the same as seat belts. The Nannies* would like us to believe it is, but it isn't.
I tell my guests where the vests are; they are adults and allowed to make up their own minds.
